Free Snowflake Tea light Cozy Pattern

Free Snowflake Tea light Cozy Pattern.

Free Pattern SnowflakeTeaLightCozy-TheHookedHaberdasher

This pattern was super fun to design as a precursor to our 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop Crochet-Along, sponsored by Red Heart Yarn! Stay tuned for details in the press release on August 28th! In the meanwhile, come on over and join our Facebook Group the “Crochet Playground” to get your hooks warmed up a couple of weeks prior to the official launch of the CAL…you don’t want to miss anything over there – and… ummm… there just may be some giveaways going on! Come play TODAY!

The yarn I used for my first Snowflake Tea Light Cozy is Red Heart Cutie Pie, a super soft velvety and fluffy loft category 3 yarn – it made for a fluffy snowflake and I love the results. For my second Snowflake Tea Light Cozy, I worked it up in Red Heart Anne Geddes Baby, also a category 3 yarn, very soft and gave great detail to my Snowflake Tea Light Cozy. I would like to thank Red Heart for generously providing the yarn for my Snowflake Tea Light Cozy projects, and give both yarns TWO THUMBS UP!

I LOVE snowflakes and enjoy the warm, soft glow of a candle – so here ya go, Oh, wait before I forget… take a minute to add the pattern to your favorites and queues on Ravelry. By doing so, you really help this designer (me) with the publicity of the pattern 🙂

Snowflake Tea Light Cozy Pattern

Materials:

  • Size G (4.00mm) crochet hook
  • Category 3 yarn (sport/DK/lt ww); Models made with Red Heart Cutie Pie colorway “cotton” and Red Heart Anne Geddes Baby colorway “Lily”
  • Tapestry/yarn needle
  • Tea light (I use battery operated candles)

Size: Designed to fit a standard tea light. Finished snowflake cozy dimension approximately 5-1/2”

Abbreviations: ch=chain; dc=double crochet; FLO=front loop only; hdc=half double crochet; P=picot; R=row; rep=repeat; sc=single crochet; sk=skip; sl st=slip stitch; sp=space; st(s)=stitch(es); tr=treble crochet

Special Stitch: Picot (P): ch3, sl st to side of st. This is a little twist on the picot (my preferred method), to always have a nice picot, without it wanting to “flop” to one side or the other; resulting in a nice “peak”.

Picot Tutorial - TheHookedHaberdasher
Notes:

  • Beginning ch3 counts as a dc
  • Beginning ch4 counts as a dc + ch1
  • Instructions in brackets [ ] are worked as a set into the same st
  • Parentheses ( ) at the end of a row indicate sts for that row
  • Instructions within * * are worked as a series and rep indicated as such *
  • Row 1 of snowflake you are essentially working the row sideways around the candle cozy

Pattern: Part 1 – Candle cozy (Tip* The “wrong side” of your work is the outward facing right side of your cozy. I added an additional R3 to my cozy when using the Red Heart Anne Geddes Baby yarn to bring the cozy to the top edge of my tea light)

ROW 1: Ch8, sl st to first ch to form a ring; ch3 and work 23 dc into ring; sl st to top of ch3 to join. (24)
Free Pattern TheHookedHaberdasher

ROW 2: sl st next st and working in FLO around, ch3, sk1, hdc; *ch1, sk1, hdc*, rep * to last st; sk last st, ch1, sl st to 2nd chain of ch3. (24)

ROW 3: ch3, sk1, hdc; *ch1, sk1, hdc*, rep* to last st; sk last st, ch1, sl st to 2nd ch of ch3. Finish off, weave tails. (24) (repeat R3 if you require a taller cozy)

Part 2 – Snowflake
ROW 1: With wrong side facing, reattach yarn to edge of R2 of candle cozy with a sl st; ch1, sc into same space; sc each st around; join with sl st to 1st sc. (24)
1SNOWFLAKER1

ROW 2: *ch5, sk3, work a sc into next st*, rep * four more times; ch5, sk4, sl st to base of ch5. (6 loop spaces)
1SNOWFLAKE R2 3

ROW 3: ch4 (counts as your first dc + ch1); *working into the ch5 loop space work [2dc, ch1, 2dc]; ch1, dc into sc from R2, ch1*, rep * 5 more times; sl st into 3rd chain of ch4.

ROW 4: ch1 and sc into same sp, P, ch3, sk ch1 sp; *working into next ch1 sp (between the four dc) [sc, P, hdc, dc, tr, P, dc, hdc, sc, P] ch3; sk two dc and ch1, [sc, P] into next dc, ch3; sk ch1 and two dc*, rep * four more times. Again working into the next ch1 sp (between the four dc) [sc, P, hdc, dc, tr, P, dc, hdc, sc, P] ch3; sk two dc and ch1, sl st to base of first sc. Finish off, weave tails.

New Pattern & Red Heart Yarn GIVEAWAY

New Pattern & Red Heart Yarn GIVEAWAY.

Giveaway Sponsored by Red Heart! Ends 08/09/15
Corset Collar Cowl-TheHookedHaberdasher
Oh, I’m so excited about my new pattern release today, the “Corset Collar Cowl”! I used Red Heart’s Boutique Infinity yarn, which was an absolute DREAM to work with! The yarn has a wonderful mill on it, which rather emulates raw wool. There are 129 yards on the skein, and my pattern uses 1 skein! Red Heart sent me a lovely box of goodies a while back and in it was a skein of Boutique Infinity yarn in the colorway Enchanted. I fell in love and ran right out and picked up a second colorway in “Oasis”. With my trusty M size Furls Crochet Candy Shop crochet hook and my beautiful Red Heart yarn, I went to work designing the Corset Collar Cowl. As mentioned the pattern uses 1 skein of Red Heart Boutique Infinity yarn, and approximately 2-3 hours of your time – and voila’, you have an on-trend fashion-forward stunning Corset Collar Cowl!

Be a sweetie and add the pattern listing to your favorites and queues on Ravelry – it really helps boost the ranking of the pattern and helps this designer (me 🙂 ) tremendously!

Free Pattern Twilight Romance Cowl

Free Pattern Twilight Romance Infinity Cowl.

I was thrilled to receive a box from Red Heart! Inside to my delight was this beautiful new yarn in their line of Boutique yarns… Red Heart Boutique Twilight in the colorway “Romantic”. The yarn is a dream to work with. Being a category 6, super bulky weight, with 59 yards on the skein, it works up the design quickly and efficiently. Although it is in the super bulky category, it is really rather light and airy in real feel, while being warm and soft to the touch. I was inspired to make something beginner friendly, easy and quick to hook with a trendy minimalist flair. I asked my fans on Facebook to help me name the pattern. The Fans came up with over 50 different names for me; however three different fans from three different groups made the same suggestion – Twilight Romance! So today, I introduce to you The Twilight Romance Infinity Cowl. This is a one-skein, approximately one-hour project with lovely results. Don’t forget to subscribe to this blog while you’re here… you WON’T want to miss what’s coming next…

Twilight Romance Infinity Cowl Crochet Pattern

Designed by The Hooked Haberdasher

Materials

1 Skein Super Bulky Red Heart Boutique Twilight – model made with “Romantic”

Size P-15 (10mm) crochet hook

Pattern:

Using the size P crochet hook, beginning with a long tail (6” or so) chain stitch the entire ball of yarn into one long chain, leaving a long tail (6” or so). Finish off.

Finishing:

Meet your ends together, essentially folding your chain in half (figure 1). At about 16” from the ends, with both strands held together, tie your first knot (figure 2). Continue knotting the two chains together approximately every 16” to within about 8” of end. Meet your ends together again, essentially folding your knotted double chain in half; now you have 4 strands of chains. With four chain strands held together, make your first knot in the middle of the first two sets of small knots (figure 3). Continue to end and the last set of small knots; do not make a large knot at the ends (figure 4). You’ll have your beginning and ending original chain ends and three loop ends, about 8” without knots (figure 5). Tug your beg/end chain ends so that they hang longer than your loop ends. Holding all 8 chain strands together, tie together in one large knot to make your infinity, leaving your beg/end chains to dangle (figure 6). Add a button or a brooch for some fun bling!

1THHbcs-6The Battle of the Stitches Challenge was so fun and really taught me that YES, indeed, I could use a stitch (the serenity stitch) with a theme (Serenity) and design, test, photograph and publish a crochet pattern in the space of a mere two weeks! I could not have accomplished this daunting task without the assistance of my four wonderful pattern testers! Christen, Elizabeth from Daisy Hand Made, Heather from Whimsies Crochet, and Katie – Thank you ladies for doing such an awesome job! You can see all of their wonderful projects under the “project” tab of the pattern listing on Ravelry 🙂 I would totally be remiss if I didn’t give a shoutout to Jimmy Beans Wool, also. Since I had such a small time frame to get this accomplished, they were nice enough to pull my Circulo Anne 100% mercerized cotton yarn in Orchid and Off White for me and ship the same day! Now THAT’S Service!

I must also thank my two beautiful models, Andrea and Mallory. Don’t you just love this “out-take” photo?!? 🙂
